4 Ways to Celebrate National Oatmeal Month

Craig Emerson | Straw Propeller

It's January! Which means you are experiencing the cold weather blahs and the intense morning cravings for oatmeal.


As temperatures dip and snow banks pile up, (well for us Central Oregonians at least) all you feel like doing is sitting by the fire with a good cup of oatmeal and hibernating until the first sign of spring. Needless to say, your morning cup of oatmeal or muesli just seems to fit in the picture. Sure, there are plenty of warming breakfast options out there, but few are as comforting as a steaming cup of oatmeal. Since January just happens to be National Oatmeal Month, there's no time like the present to experiment with a little thing called oats.

1. ) Got a sweet tooth? You can still get your oats in: Just whip up a batch of our yummy Maple Oats Pancakes.

2.) If you feel like taking the savory route, try our Indian Curry, Moroccan Spice or Tuscan Herb as a dinner side.

3.) Crunched for time? Our products are designed to sustain those "real" lifestyles that all of us live each and every day with our instant oatmeal.

4.) For a grab and go breakfast that may not warm you up, but will definitely fill you up, try our muesli flavors.
